How long does marijuana stay in our system?

Hi, I have not smoked marijuana for about 3.5-4 months now. But then I smoked 2 hits of good quality marijuana about 2 weeks ago. I m interviewing now and will be having a hair follicle test in a about 3-4 weeks. I m a little nervous about passing the test. I also have a prescription (not sure if that matters since I will be moving out of state to a state with strict laws for the position). Thank you for your help.
